U.S. national security personnel charged with leaking secret Russian document

Citing information from leaked National Security Agency documents, the article shows that Russian Federation attempted to hack a voting software supplier and also obtain information from more than 100 U.S. election officials that would allow it to gain access to voter registration rolls. Subsequent reports linked the two incidents.

In a social post, victor told a friend that her time with Perdue's staff, which she called a "private 30 minute meeting", went "really well". She was arrested Saturday at her home in Augusta, Ga., but the case was not announced until Monday. "The first is that they recognize a barely visible pattern on currency, so that they can't be used to counterfeit money", Mr.

The pages from the NSA's printers came with invisible tracking dots.

It's not unusual for government contractors to have top-secret clearance, said Bob Deitz, former top counsel at the NSA.

"Because the NSA logs all printing jobs on its printers, it can use this to match up precisely who printed the document", security expert Rob Graham wrote for the blog Errata Security. A search identified six employees who printed it out, including victor.

Victor is the first person accused of leaking classified information to be charged with a crime under the Trump administration. This allowed the organization to detect creases in the pages, "suggesting they had been printed and hand-carried out of a secure space", and hinting that the source was an insider. He said the agency that housed the report was able to identify only six people - including victor - who were privy to the report in the NSA's Georgia facility and had access to the document.

The Intercept is a three-year-old online publication focused on national security and surveillance.


A far bigger giveaway than the dots involved the digital traces that the suspected leaker left on work computers.

And it underscores the contention of security experts and computer scientists that the highly decentralized, often ramshackle US election system remains profoundly vulnerable to trickery or sabotage.

Winner's mother told CNN her daughter was not "especially political", but on Facebook she expressed opposition to the controversial Dakota Access Pipeline and President Trump's proposed border wall, according to Fox News.

Her lawyer refused to confirm if the charge related to the report.

In an affidavit, the Federal Bureau of Investigation said victor worked for Pluribus International Corporation, a contractor for the National Security Agency, in Augusta, Georgia. Anyone seeking to extract information from an internal network and to leak it should know about this risk.

Officials were likely then able to pinpoint victor by deciphering and decoding several other inconspicuous signals within the published sensitive documents. The computer review also showed that on May 9 she searched the NSA's classified system using search terms that led to the report, which she printed that day. "Talk about making investigation easy", he said. Intercept said its story was based on "a highly classified intelligence report" that had been provided anonymously to the group and had been "independently authenticated". She is now being held in Georgia while awaiting a hearing. Victor faces allegations that have not been proven.

Snowden criticized Winner's arrest in a statement he released Tuesday through the Freedom of the Press Foundation. Her lawyer did not respond to a request for comment.
